Circa 1898. White gingerbread trim, clapboard siding and a towering turret are classic details of this Queen Anne Victorian mansion on one acre in Historic Heights, just four miles from downtown Houston, Texas. ...

Not worth it.

Beautiful place without a doubt, great location and it could be one of the best around. Sad thing... service is terrible, inn keepers missing in action, breakfast is better at McDonalds, no need to sleep at night... a huge humming, tractor engine like noise will make sure you don't. We stayed there for one night and run away. Again beautiful place but no attention to detail... simple things like your toilet running all night long, or a TV so small that wasn't even worth turning it on. My parents could not sleep due to a humming noise all night long, while we had to deal with the running toilet. Then before going to sleep I had to turn all the lights off... in hallways, empty rooms, living room etc. These people just don't know the meaning of "energy savings" We never saw one person there to greet us or even ask if anything or everything was Ok.... of course not until they had to collect the $125/night rate. We had to call them for that too... then shared the noise problem and the toilet situation... the lady did apologize but that's as far as that went. As an innkeeper she should have known better. You go to a place like this to rest! At least that was our goal. Obviously that was not the case here. Particularly with my parents who couldn't sleep all night with the noise. Almost $300 later, we felt frankly ripped off. And did I mentioned my parents only view out of their room was insulation board from the under construction "monster" home? 5 feet or so away from the only window in your room?! Granted, it is out of their control but in fairness to THE PAYING GUEST they should have mentioned it. Finally, the place lacks at least one courtesy bottle of water, my parents had a tiny 14" TV placed at an almost 90 degree angle from your bed.... no individual AC or heat control, four times I had to go out to main hallway to turn the heat down... at $125/night !?!? You get a lot for at La Quinta. Two words: STAY AWAY. These people only care about collecting the money, not your comfort, nor customer satisfaction.
